Sound-Image Colloquium Sound-Image Conference

SOUND/IMAGE: Exploring sonic and audio-visual practice

10-11 November 2018

We are delighted to be holding this event once again this year. The Sound/Image colloquium explores the relationships between sounds and images, and the images which sounds can construct by themselves.

Through a series of complementary strands – talks, screenings, loudspeaker orchestra concerts – we will bring together artists and experts to investigate sound and sound-image phenomena.

Our special guest for 2018 is Denis Smalley who will present a concert of recent acousmatic compositions.
